The next episode of the Japanese broadcast sees fan-favorite Pokémon, Mewtwo, return to the anime series, once again voiced by Pokémon: The First Movie‘s voice actor Masachika Ichimura, reprising his role from the film, the remake, and the TV special sequel. After tonight’s Japanese broadcast of the latest episode of Pokémon Journeys, the “next time” trailer previewed Mewtwo in his first newly animated appearance since 2001.
We reported last week that Ichimura was reprising his role in a new three-episode arc for the long-running franchise, with the first episode, titled “Battle & Get! Mewtwo’s Revival” in Japan, airing on November 20 – next Friday in Japan. Fans overseas will have to wait a while to see the episode though, as Netflix is releasing the series in the United States in batches, with the third part coming December 4 (this episode will likely be part of the fourth batch sometime in 2021).
